The MOSTLY KOSHER Jewish revival band and theater ensemble is based in Southern California, but has the feel of Lower Eastside New York with a 1930s radio show format. Mostly Kosher music ranges from upbeat klezmer to plaintive Yiddish melodies with a modern twist now and then!
Directed by the multi-talented clarinetist, pianist and singer, Leeav Sofer, Mostly Kosher is already making a name in the Jewish music world. Leeav is joined by Janice “Rachele the Matchmaker” Mautner Markham on violin and shtick, as well as Casey Solow, Mike King, Will Brahm, Adam Levy, Eric Hagstrom, Michael Bolger and guest soloist Cantor Faith Steinsnyder.
Fulfilling the vision of Rabbi Harold M. Schulweis and with the support of the Schulweis Institute, Dr. Michelle Green Willner, now its Musical Director, founded the Jewish Community Children’s Choir (JCCC) in July 2011.
Raising their voices in harmony, the children in the JCCC represent a cross-section of the many denominations in the Jewish community of Los Angeles. Its members attend public schools, private Jewish day schools, charter schools as well as being home-schooled. For some of these students, the JCCC is their only connection to Jewish culture. Under the dynamic leadership of Dr. Michelle Green Willner, the JCCC focuses on teaching children how to read music and how to perform professionally by inspiring a new generation in the singing of Jewish choral repertoire, both old and new.
CONCERT CANCELLED DUE TO DEATH OF RABBI HAROLD M. SCHULWEIS (z"l)
May his memory be for a blessing!
